STEWART Milne Homes is to build more than 350 homes at developments in Arbroath, Ballumbie and Blairgowrie, with the firm estimating that 150 jobs will be created from the project.
As a result, a recruitment event at the Double Tree Hilton in Dundee will be held on Thursday, July 4 from 16:30 – 18:30. The drop-in event is aimed at both prospective employees and subcontractors, allowing them further insight into the opportunities at the sites.
Neil McKenzie, commercial manager at Stewart Milne Homes said, “This investment and subsequent employment opportunities will have a positive impact on the local economy, which, albeit bolstered by the V&A-led city regeneration and the Tay Cities Deal, has been dealt harsh blows recently with the anticipated closures of well-known businesses and subsequent job losses.
“We’re confident that our plans for these three developments will provide attractive employment in the region’s construction industry, with a mix of roles available both directly with Stewart Milne Homes and also through sub-contractors.”
He added, “Whilst Stewart Milne Homes continues to increase the amount of people we have on ‘our books’ – we are equally keen to partner with local subcontractors. We’ve invested heavily in establishing mutually beneficial partnerships with our subcontractors, whereby they benefit from attractive terms and conditions as well as from our award-winning approach to health and safety, quality craftsmanship and apprenticeships.”
